I can’t speak for all the moms out there, but this mom loves books. I love reading books for me and I love reading to my little girl. It is very common for me to bookmark our pages with cards or small cut outs of drawings that my daughter makes me. Lately, I have been reading to my daughter less and less. My six-year-old has been learning to read and has been wanting to read books on her own more frequently. I knew this day would eventually come. It is here and it is the inspiration for these Mother’s Day bookmarks. This is a sweet keepsake that will make you smile every time you read a book. A grandma and blank name template are also available.

We wanted to do something special for my mother-in-law aka Nana for Mother’s Day. Mai & I had some different ideas of crafts we could make for her Nana for Mother’s Day, but then I came across the most fabulous idea on Pinterest. I could not find the original source to credit it, but found it on a greatest gift ideas list from Tips From A Typical Mom.
It was so beautiful, I knew I had to try it.
All you will need is a camera, wooden letters and a frame.
We only needed to buy the “N’ & the “A”. They were in natural wood & only cost a few dollars each. I bought the frame while I was there too.
I told Mai that we were going to make a special project for Nana & she was excited. I gave her the letters & asked her to do a number of different poses for me. She did a great job for her Nana. She hammed it up and lit up the camera with her dimply smile. We took about 50 pictures & picked the best 4 from the bunch.
I cropped them & changed them to black & white & arranged them in the frame.
The project came out beautifully.
My mother-in-law absolutely loved her gift.
Mother’s Day might be over, but this is a great gift idea for any occasion & you can change the lettering to spell any word that you would like. I have even seen this done holding words instead of letters to spell out a message.
